Storyline

Big-shot executive Robert Stiles' car is damaged when parked at the lodge. Stiles takes Red Green and the other lodge members to court, forcing them to come up with $10,000 in damages in ten days - or else lose their beloved Possum Lodge. Red and the boys embark on a road trip across the country, en route to a Duct Tape Festival in the USA, where they intend to win first prize by creating a sculpture made of at least 50% duct tape. Unfortunately, Stiles has bought off a crooked sheriff who intends to make the trip very difficult for Red... Written by Anonymous

"Jolly good fun..."
21 October 2002 | by (Washington State, USA) – See all my reviews

When I saw this movie, I had actually only seen the show twice. I joined a group of friends who told me that Steve "Red Green" Smith would be there at the theater to personally introduce the movie. So there I went... Even walked away with an autographed roll of duct tape.

Going into the movie, I didn't really know what to expect. The Red Green Show, while ingenious in its own way, would need the potential for some serious story expansion for the film to succeed. As Steve put it, "Decide how you feel about this movie before you see it."

This bit of comic relief not withstanding, this film was a very enjoyable buddy-picture. The plot is fairly standard fare, with the wealthy, megalomaniacal nemesis with 'mommy' issues who's looking to remove the lodge to develop the land, and the residents of said lodge making a last-ditch move to save it.

Harold... Was quite annoying. And in that aspect, the actor is no doubt quite talented. If you don't like the antics of an Urkel-type... Bring some earplugs.

Lots of good fun, if you don't need all-too serious of a plot. Now where's that duct tape...
